Lounge Sessions: Live Music at Hotel Blue

Aug

22

Time: Friday evenings, 6:30 - 8:30 pm
Location: Hotel Blue, Katoomba

As a celebration of this historic guesthouse’s 1920s heritage, Hotel Blue is proud to present Lounge Sessions: live jazz on Friday nights (and occasionally other nights of the week as well). Hotel Blue’s Guest Lounge is perfect as an relaxed, intimate space for live music.

The Parlour Bar showcases a range of 1920s-inspired cocktails, including forgotten gems such as the “Bee’s Knees,”  the “Gin Rickey” and the “South Side”, as well as old favourites like the Martini, the Sidecar and the Mint Julep.

A casual dinner menu, featuring gourmet pizzas, mouth-watering pierogi (Polish dumplings) and more, is available every Friday and Saturday evening. Hotel Blue’s Sisters Blue Restaurant is also open every Friday and Saturday evening, offering a more formal menu.

Lounge Sessions will be in swing on the following dates, in the intimate setting of Hotel Blue’s spacious Guest Lounge and Parlour Bar.
